“I was sup­posed to go to art school in Bos­ton, but I ditched out and moved in with my cousin in New York. At first, I did mostly dig­i­tal work, but then I started prac­tic­ing with dif­fer­ent types of acrylics and oils. When I de­cided I just wanted to paint, I locked my­self into my apart­ment for a year and painted im­ages found in the fash­ion mag­a­zines I col­lected. Friends kept ask­ing to buy my pieces, but it just didn’t seem right to sell them. So I left the can­vases out­side on the street for ev­ery­one to enjoy. I found that tak­ing my art out­doors gave it a whole new life.”
